Maureen Larkin Wright, the bride's mother, was matron of honor and Charlie Moses, the groom's best friend, stood up for him.

Reflecting on the ceremony a few months later, Caitlin wrote, "I never was known for appropriate behavior at solemn occasions, and I certainly was true to form. I still am not sure how Tim feels about a wife who giggled through her vows!"

My Niece Jill's Wedding

Mr. and Mrs. Kevin Bonner

Jill VanderPutten and Kevin Bonner were married at 8 PM on New Year's Eve, 1993.

The couple were married by a local Justice at the home of Jill's parents, John and Pat Vander-Putten. Jill's daughter from her first marriage, Carole-Anne, was the maid of honor. Kevin`s friend Vito was the best man. A small reception followed at her parents home.

Jill notes for posterity: "And actually there is a funny story, Kevin's family is perpetually late, and right when the judge said, is there anyone here who objects to this marriage the doorbell rang. It was some late members of Kevin's family. An omen?  Who knows?"
